I LOVED diet soda, have had it for YEARS. The last diet I was on said to not drink it. I thought I would not be able to handle that request! Well, I surely surprised myself. I have not had diet soda for over 1 year Plus I don't miss it either. I drink water and tea and coffee. Mostly water. I just forget to mark it off every day.
One thing about it. My hubby said he thinks I substitute ice cream instead. Hmm...he may have a point. So my next secret will be to try and recognize when I want ice cream, why, and handle it realistically.

Diet soda is nothing but trouble, especially for those of us who become addicted. 234
If you quit drinking diet soda and replace it with water and/or tea with no artificial sweetener, you will be amazed at how much easier it is to stick to your diet plan. I lost 5 pounds of bloating the first week I quit diet soda. I was drinking anywhere from 3 to 10 cans of soda a day. Not good!
